Oh, I'm naming mine Barbaro!
So, I guess the general consensus is that Black Betty is a bad name... I do like Ruffian... but I can't steal a name from someone else...

Go with what you really like best! To me the Camaro is more like a very powerful animal than a human, though.

Jesus, I thought that was Carlos Mencia in that picture for a second. Was gonna say it was good to see him move onto bigger and better things.

A new Camaro.....in Black.........should not in any way, shape or form. Be female! Your gonna give the car a complex! It will look down right Bad ass and masculine! Dont give it a name. Refer to it as Him or He in discussion. Go and get a pair of those plastic Bull "Berries" that you can let dangle under the rear end!
Or.............if you are short in stature and resemble a Hobbitt.....call it "Precious"............. Call the car what you want! Its a new Camaro and you will be all smiles!!

It's pretty simple for me, when I first had my 66 Chevelle on the road, it was "The Chevelle"... then I got the 69 Chevelle and it became "The 66" and "The 69", so the Camaro will start off as "TheCamaro" , although my b-inlaw is trying to convince me to by his 72 RSZ28, then I'll have to rethink it.

Nice photo!

No doubt about that! I just knew going into Belmont Big Brown wouldn't win....but sure as heck didn't think he end up last-of course, his jockey gave him no chance.

Then there was Secretariat, nicknamed "Big Red" who decimated the field at Belmont.....I always thought Hard Spun was a great horse too.

I think if you called Bumblebee "Betty" he just MAY kick your "posterior"......








As to the name --


I swear these Camaros -- each of them -- have their own personality.......

When you get your Camaro -- a name will 'come' to you...........

haha

but all jokes aside...im not that old so tradition means nothing to mean as far as car names go...and i personally always thought it was stupid to name a sports car of any type after a female...i think of my cars as fast, strong, and beastly....no female fits that description...name a luxury or show car after a girl...
